It sucks for those guys and frankly it is unfair. You can't slice it any other way.
That's not even apples and oranges. It's apples and monster trucks.
Do the elite doctors get a chance to leave med school before they do their residency? Completely different system when talking about doctors and baseball players. The best college baseball players turn pro after their junior seasons. Period. College players that return for their senior season absolutely know the "risk." (For some, it's not a risk because they didn't even get drafted as a junior. But for some that are drafted late, it's a risk to come back.)
They know what they're getting into. It's not even up for debate.
